Technology may win battles, but can it win wars?

Two wars rage on the Iraq battlefront. In one, laser-guided bombs, networked intelligence systems and unmanned aerial vehicles dominate an over-whelmed enemy. In the other, no-tech guerrilla insurgents play by their own rules, inflicting casualties, and sowing chaos and mistrust

This clash of "smart" technology versus desperate terrorism is causing some experts and government leaders to seriously question America's battle plan, spending strategies, and political policies. NOVA offers a rare first-hand look at the remarkable innovations - and lethal frustrations - of the modern battlefield.

With exclusive access to government and military decision-makers, go inside the Pentagon and key defense agencies and discover how ultra-advanced weapons and systems were rushed from blueprint to battlefront. See how "network-centric" warfare is changing the way we fight. Hear the military leaders and experts argue that sophisticated technology may not be enough to prevail in a guerilla war. Finally, face the bigger question: In the heat of war, can even the most advanced weapons assure victory?
